Last night at 11 p.m. ET, Kanye West was in true Kanye form as he delivered a new rant comparing himself to Steve Jobs and Andy Warhol at Art Basel in Switzerland.

Radaronline reports that he also declared:

I am a God.

Well, it’s actually a new song of his, but still. Watch “I Am a God” below.

Kanye also talked about his relationship with Kim Kardashian saying that being with her sometimes “distracts him from that higher purpose.” He also says that:

I fight in my position of being a very commercial celebrity boyfriend. I fight to push culture forward every chance I get.

In the Rick Owens furniture showroom, Kanye also told a crowd of 200 people that:

I feel almost like Steve Jobs giving one of those addresses right now.

But the quote that took the cake was this:

What I want people to understand about sampling and producing is that it’s really similar to — and I know this is obvious what I’m going to say, because I’m a black guy so I’m gonna name the ‘most obvious artist in the world, Warhol — but it’s very similar to the … Warhol would appropriate a Campbell’s Soup can is the way I would sonically appropriate a Ray Charles sample or a Michael Jackson sample.

Yikes. We are hoping this is just a decoy to distract us from all the cheating rumors floating around in regards to Leyla Ghobadi.
